experts and others have come out and said this not a bad deal. this is a very good deal. it gives the u.s. and israel more time. and more importantly it is not the final agreement, but at least could begin to pave the way. >> to that point, it strikes me that part of what we're seeing and hearing here is the difference between sort of policymakers who talk about the deal versus the politics of what the prime minister has to do to keep the pressure on. that seems like we will be hearing statements like that from other leaders throughout the region. >> that's correct. absolutely right. in fact, it's not yus the israelis that are expressing their reservations about this deal. some of the u.s.'s closest arab allies including saudi arabia have also been somewhat reserved about this deal between the united states and iran over this nuclear deal. obviously there are a lot of geopolitical tensions between iran and some of its allies in the region. and saudi arabia and the united arab emirates. so this is shaping up to be a very challenging moment for the united states in the region because of the

asked us to be better. he said each of us can give more, can do more. >> we've got plenty to cover in the world of politics this afternoon. first, we're continuing to follow severe thunderstorms and tornadoes currently threatening an area of the midwest that's home to tens of millions of people. ten tornadoes have already touched down resulting in one fatality. officials tell us some 83,000 people are currently without electricity in central illinois. nbc meteorologist dylan dreyer is here with the latest. dylan, where's the storm and where do we think it's heading? >> right now it is moving into areas like michigan and indiana. it is clearing out of the illinois area. we are seeing major improvements as temperatures drop out that way. but now we're watching our most severe line of storms from north to south cutting in half indiana. it is racing eastward. these storms are moving at about 55 to 65 miles per hour. that's highway speed moving from west to east. we're also seeing some of those storms also moving just as quickly through central michigan right now. so they will get into
